Our souls are like raindrops
One is infinitesimal
But as they gather together in their journey through life
They become a torrent.

Swirling, blending, intertwining and separating
Only to come together again
We may not even notice the gathering
The constant accumulation of like minded seekers.

Some move fast and directly toward the destination
Some meander and leisurely mark their course
There are more souls alive today than have ever lived before
That staggers my mind to think of things that way.

Some souls are one of many that were joined at one time
As part of an Oversoul
An entity that is larger than the sum of it's parts
We may not recognize our former partners.

But sometimes we have the good fortune to know
Instinctively that another soul used to be a part of you and you a part of it
The constant ebb and flow of the tide of souls makes us all brothers and sisters
Under the skin.

We move toward one destination
One point in time and space
That destination is also our point of departure
We all left home in order to find it and in the process

We find each other.
